Editor’s note: Droooooooooling! These scenes are music to my Soul.
Think Norway, and the first thing that comes to mind are fjords, blonde people and Vikings – not fairy tale architecture.
Below, you’ll find photographs of architecture in the Norwegian countryside that looks like it’s been taken straight from a fairy tale. The architectural styles range from Stave churches, which were built during the Middle Ages, to ghostly natural waterfalls and traditional wooden houses constructed in the Norwegian vernacular style (byggeskikk) during the 19th century.
(NaturalNews) Broadening their definition of medicine, the Swiss government is announcing a positive shift toward alternative healing and complementary therapies. For far too long, health insurance has guaranteed a monopoly for a system dominated by synthetic drugs. The Swiss government is breaking out of that confining mold and allowing patients’ health insurance plans to cover five new complementary therapies.
In May 2017, health insurance plans in Switzerland will be covering a variety of healing modalities, including homeopathy, acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, herbal medicine and holistic medicine. In this way, Switzerland will be bringing back the many healing arts that were used successfully in the past.
Editor’s note: “The Russian’s Did It” narrative continues to lose credibility.
In an ironic twist, it appears it may not have been ‘The Russians’ that hacked America’s political system last year. As The Daily Caller reports,three brothers (Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan) who managed office IT for members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and other lawmakers were abruptly relieved of their duties on suspicion that they accessed congressional computer networks without permission.

As Luke Rosiak repoerts, the brothers were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives Thursday, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.
Three members of the intelligence panel and five members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs were among the dozens of members who employed the suspects on a shared basis. The two committees deal with many of the nation’s most sensitive issues, information and documents, including those related to the war on terrorism.
The brothers are suspected of serious violations, including accessing members’ computer networks without their knowledge and stealing equipment from Congress.
The three men are “shared employees,” meaning they are hired by multiple offices, which split their salaries and use them as needed for IT services. It is up to each member to fire them from working…
On a scale of 1 to 10, how powerful do you think thoughts are to success, compared to hard work, passion, money, character, and charisma? If you’ve prioritized and rated thoughts above everything else, then you’re onto something special.
Are you aware of the following?
Our thoughts (whether positive or negative) define how we perceive a situation, how we react and respond to them, and what we learn from them.
We know that in the end thoughts define our behavior, which when repeated consistently becomes a habit, and eventually becomes ingrained as an attitude towards life?
As a result, our thoughts affects what we believe about ourselves and our capabilities, and hence what we are capable of and will do.
Most of us are aware of that. However, there is something far more special about rating thoughts higher than everything else. It is knowing how they can impact our lives in the long run.
What if I tell you, that by believing strongly in your thoughts as being the most powerful aspect of your life, you can actuallyaffect the physical reality of yourself and everyone around you?
Well, someone has spent a lifetime trying to physically demonstrate the impact thoughts can have on our reality. And the results and insights are not just remarkable, but transformative.
THOUGHTS ARE POWERFUL — DR. MASARU EMOTO AND EXPERIMENTS ON THE PHYSICAL POWER OF THOUGHTS
Have you heard the adage ‘one is all and all is one’? It is a monist theme that reverberates across human history. Different religions and belief systems speak of our interconnectedness to the world around us and to one another as living beings. But how are we connected?
One recent explanation has been through quantum mechanics, and how our collective conscience can affect our lives.
Then there was an indirect hypothesis by Dr. Masaru Emoto, who set out to understand the impact our thoughts can have on water. He spent the entire decade of the 1990’s performing experiments to see how positive and negative thoughts can alter the properties of water.
His experiments are simple and powerful.
DR MASARU EMOTO’S EXPERIMENTS
Dr. Emoto filled multiple containers with water, and to each, he directed either positive or negative thoughts — both written and verbal. He wrote either positive or negative words on the container, spoke to them positively or negatively, or played positive and negative music to the container.
For instance, saying positive statements such as “Thank You”, “I love you”, “I am grateful for you” to one container while making negative statements such as “I hate you”, “I will hurt you”, “Get away from me!” etc. to another.
In a similar vein, he directed music with positive or negative tones and lyrics towards another set of containers.
Each experiment was conducted for a specific time. At the end of the experiments, he collected samples of water from each container and froze them. The crystals were then photographed.
THE RESULTS OF THE EXPERIMENTS
Dr. Emoto found that samples of water that were treated to positive thoughts and intentions formed clear and beautiful ice crystals, whereas those exposed to negative thoughts and intentions showed negative and ugly patterns.
Here is a video showing the photographed crystals:
Dr. Emoto then took the experiments to a completely new level by adding human indifference in his experiments.
He added rice to three containers, adding water, and then subjecting each to a positive, negative, and an indifferent attitude for 30 days.
Positive = Positive prayers
Negative = Harsh statements
Indifference = Completely ignoring them
At the end of 30 days, he compared the level of decay in each container.
He found that the container that was showered with positive praise fermented, giving off a sweet aroma.
The one exposed to negativity turned black.
The neglected container also caught mold and decayed, showing how indifference to oneself is also devastating.
(Dr Masaru Emoto’s book, The Hidden Messages in Water is available on Amazon).
Given that 60% of our body mass is made of water, imagine how our thoughts and intents about ourselves and about people around us dramatically alter our own auras, and empower others.
This is where positive affirmations come into play: these are the positive thoughts that we say to ourselves, which both cleanse and strengthen our personal auras and those of people we care about and love.
So, the next time you dive into introspection and come out with better understanding of your insecurities and limiting beliefs, simply transform them into positive mantras about change and empowerment for yourself. Then repeat them to yourself each day and observe how over time, your physical reality starts to transform and change.
An ‘aura’ field can be defined as a luminous glow or radiation that surrounds a person’s body, almost like a halo. Ancient depictions of religious and spiritual figures often feature this aura, but today, modern science is discovering that we are all, in fact, surrounded by this type of field, and it can actually affect the way we feel.
We know that energy cannot be seen with the naked human eye, which is why attempts to measure invisible phenomena scientifically are often greeted with harsh criticism, but thanks to the groundbreaking work of dedicated scientists from all over the world, the concept of non-material science is starting to become accepted in the mainstream. This refers to the idea that the physical material reality we perceive with our senses isn’t the only reality that’s available for us to study in a modern day scientific manner.
